Tate-Brandon House Museum


category : Museums
Tate-Brandon House Museum The Industrial Revolution brought about the increased substitution of machinery for human effort. By the mid-1800's, the use of iron, coal and steam had revolutionized the building and manufacturing processes. It was a vigorous and flamboyant era and for the first time, people of modest circumstances could afford to take advantage of the fruits of progress.

True to the era, the Tate-Brandon House reflects many different patterns, materials and colors in its construction, decoration, furnishings and apparel collection. Partially built before the Civil War in Greek Revival Style (a second story was later added), changes made in the early 1900's are best described as Stick Style with Queen Anne features. Highlights include a tub stenciled in an 1890's pattern created by Candace Wheeler, a well-known designer of fabrics and wallpaper; a basement that houses a children's toy exhibit; a bird's egg collection; Renaissance Revival, Queen Anne, and Empire style furnishings; and hand-cut English-style wallpaper.

In 2002, this house was transformed during a year-long restoration led by Columbus resident Nancy Narron with support from the Columbus Historical Preservation Trust, Inc. Whenever possible, wallpapers resembling those of the early 1900's were installed during the restoration. The result is a beautiful, lovingly decorated and historically accurate house museum that clearly depicts small-town life a century ago.
